About 10 years ago my son brought home his now wife to meet me. Things did not go well. He is now married with 2 children. I haven't had a conversation with him in 7 yrs. I've not met the 1.2 yr old. His sisters know what went on but do all they can to keep the peace and stay in his life. My final explosion I so regret... I said things to him that weren't nice.. Being treated poorly had gotten to me. Now he is treating his grandmother ( my mother) the same way. Like she is not important. She's hurt. I'm hurt. None of us live close. I did apologize to him for my rant. I really don't think it hurt him. I think he was already done with me right after he met his wife. I raised my children without their dad. I had a reputation as a go to mom for advice. My children are strong bright and self supporting. But our relationships are stressed. I don't know what to do. I'm not welcome. The oldest turns 7 this month. I babysat him the first year of his life. I miss him. I'd like to meet the baby. I have never felt more insignificant as I do now. No I'm not perfect. But I'm a good person with lots to share. I've been depressed for 10 yrs. Counceled and felt better for awhile. But Im slipping into darkness again because this breaks my heart. I'm lost and concerned. My son and I were close. Now it's like it never was. Anyone have suggestions? Should I just go on and not be involved at all like this birthday gift to Sam ? My granddaughter said Sam misses me. But if the parents want me out should I just not push? It's so painful.
